The 1st Foundation Course of the TOBI Gateway Project was held. It was the first gathering of the TOBIRA candidates. In the morning we had orientation. The staff introduced themselves, the annual schedule was confirmed, and other things.
In the afternoon there was preparation of Katsuhiko Hibino’s program, “Art Connector,” for the Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum Renovation Memorial Ceremony. “Art Connector” is a workshop associated with “Promoting Communication through Art,” the new principle of art communication that the Museum is working on. The artist Katsuhiko Hibino designed pins about themes like the Museum’s history and activities, and the TOBIRA candidates got together to finish off the name tag holders to which the pins were attached.
